Susan Pearse is a writer, speaker and leadership consultant specializing in mindfulness and attention.
Along with her business partner Martina Sheehan, she is co-founder of Mind Gardener offering mindfulness based retreats and workshops for individuals and organizations.
She is co-author of a number of books including “One Moment Please: It’s Time to Pay Attention”, “Wired For Life: Retrain Your Brain and Thrive”, and the book which forms the basis of today’s discussion, “Do Less Be More: How To Slow Down And Make Space For What Really Matters”.
In today’s episode we discuss why doing nothing matters, some of the reason people find it difficult to let go and relax, we answers questions such as when does productivity spillover into busyness, how to know the difference between relaxing and wasting time, and how relaxation can actually help, rather than hinder, your ambitions.
We also offer a few tips from Susan’s book “Do Less Be More” on how to master the art of doing nothing including how to go on a date with yourself, having a not-to-do list, and the beauty of boredom.
